j\ Chicago woman in a letter to the outdoor’s editor of a Windy
r,tv daiiy publication has caused the question ’’What is a fish caller
“ jvlvte can one be obtained?” to be raised.
! In a reply to her question it is highly possible the outdoor
editor went out on a limb as lte w rote “I know of a moose caller,
a caller, a crow caller and train caller but not a fish caller.”
Xu- column today takes issue with Bob Becker, the editor in
1 I hare been fishing for some 30-odd years and have rnn into
numerous types of fish callers.
jp first recollection of a fish caller came during early youth as
the fish man 'vent through our neighborhood and by virtue of blow
h arts on his tinfty horn caused housewives to run from their doors
t make purchases of his finny cargo.
10 of course that is reversing the issue.
In Ringstead, Iowa—gosh memory carries you back—my uncle
in 1317 cut a piece of willow and after working on it took me cat
!■ ^ung
He would blow on his ‘magic flute’ then cast into the waters,
tidier there was a goodly school of the snub-nosed specie play
in„ about or yie flute had done its work—a sack filled with fish
,vas the result.
Several years later, following a move to a little city known as
Cumberland. Md„ I again came in contact with fish calling.
At that time a youngster—and so was I—by the name of Dan
iel Hendrickson, spent many honrs fishing in the Potomac river.
If memory serves rightly we would sit along the bank and chant:
•Fishy, fishy, please bite my hook.”
And bv all that is holy, it seemed to work.
Time moves along and in the late 1920’s my father decided it
uas to move to another town and your scribe took that occa
sion to try out new fishing waters.
In a reservoir near the center of the town of Massillon, Ohio, the
fish played in schools but for some reason the schools always played
shout in spots distant from baits which were angled in the waters.
A new trick of fish calling then came to the fore and on days
when three of more anglers fished together we would combine our
While one man iisnerman angled two others would walk some dis
'.ant away and by the cracking of stones together under the water
would cause the fish to school in a central location, that location being
exactly where the third Waltonite was fishing.
Another type of fish calling has been brought to mind rather
forcibly by virtue of having fished near railroad trestles.
The fish seem to be attracted by the wierd sounds produced by
locomotive whistles and the rattle of cars as they pass overhead.
In our own backyard the same appears to be true as numerous
sherphead are caught aronnd bridge pilings, probably attracted
there by bumming of car motors. C\o, we never heard of barn
Now for one on the other side of the ledger.
Hare you ever gone fishing with your wife, fiancee or best
girl friend and just when they start biting the call “Let’s go home.
J'm tired" hits your ear?
That is one of the major fishing calls of all times.
Back to the calling of fish.
My grandfather gave forth with a good one years ago with this
little yarn.
' There was an old man who had a wooden leg,
"He had no tobacco so tobacco he would beg.
Sn he threw away his rocks (bad habits) and toofi np fishing
“And he always had tobacco in his old tobacco box.
"He begged some tobacco and on a river hp it spread.
“As the fish took a chew and rose up to spit,
“He would hit them in the head.
“And with the proceeds from his catch,
“He bought tobacco for his old tobacco box.’’
That is fish calling of the highest type, or perhaps it should be
called chumming.
CINCINNATI, Aug. 2 — {&)—'The
I Cincinnati Reds took advantage ot
1 t lapse in Boston’s defensive play
I in -he eighth inning today to chase

season of victories and the con
ference championship whic!^ went
to Wilson last year.
Forty-two varsity boys don sum
mer grid garb tomorrow, with 15
of the lads newcomers to the var
sity ranks.
Brogden’s biggest losses from
last year appear to be in the end
berths, as both Buddy Bridges and
Bob Stewart graduated. The loss
of Bubba Sykes and Herman Vick,
severe as it may be, is rot ex
pected to cause too many head
aches because there are capable
men ready to step in, but the end
berths may give Brog his greatest

Brogden has reported a'l posi
tions are open for hot battles, and
no Wildcat can rest assured he
has a position clinched, but Doc
Venters and Jim Gibson, co-cap
tains of the 1947 squad seem
tagged for left guard and fullback
respectively. Gibson has played
first string for two years, starting
as an end and switching to the
backfield because of exceptional
leg drive. Last year he shone par
ticularly in the Fayetteville game
when he tore the rival front wall
to shreds with olf-tackle smashes.
Gibson is expected to shoulder the
burden of punting, but it's too
early to say.
Venters. a 190-pounaer, was
right tackle last season and will
either remain in his position or
fill in for the graduated Butch
Swart at left guard. Venters’ mo
ment of glory last year came in
the Rocky Mount game when he
recovered a fumble and raced 45
yards for the lone score of the
Jimmy Piner, named most valu
uable player on the 1946 eleven

and there is no reason to believe
he won’t be in the same form this
season. Piner also stood out for
his great defensive ability, and
more than once Wilmington fans
applauded his bone-shattering
If Brogden takes to the air this
year, Irvin Gore looms as the
probable offensive threat, and
Gore may also get the first crack
at the quarterback berth. Gore is
the man who kicks the extra
points for the Wildcats, and
topped all point-after men in the
conference last year.
Charlie Smith, now grabbing
headlines in the baseball world,
was kept off the first string eleven
last year because of Piner’s abil
ity, and because of the- prescvce
of Sykes. This year Smith figures
to get the inside track for one of
tile baskfield berths, and will be
battling for the scat-back slot.
Honeycutt, Dek Joraan, Bobby
Haas and Homer Brewer are re
turnees who may hit the first
string jackpot this year, but with
42 men out (in the first practices
session, Brogden is slating plenty
of drilling before giving any
berths away.

Craig Hampton, Clay Johnson and
John Swart.
Tire field is wide open for these
men. Brogden is leaving it wide
open. Last year’s performances
mean little.. They’re as out of date
as last year’s headlines. The Wild
